Copy of MAC AND CHEESE: 3 WAYS (VEGAN)

These 3 variations of Mac and Cheese are vegan, gluten free, oil free, delicious and easy to make! You'll never find yourself bored of mac and cheese with 4 different options.

 

 

Mac and Cheese has to be one of the most comforting foods out there, I mean I see why it is... it's just ... how do I explain it? SO COMFORTING. I think it's because I grew up eating it with friends and family whether it be out of the KD box or my mom's home made baked mac and cheese. 

I actually made this mac and cheese sauce with a couple friends for a Christmas potluck and since then this has been my go-to recipe. While I admit, it doesn't mimic the exact taste of KD it's actually rather pleasing because it doesn't have that strong artificial flavour but instead a creamy smooth texture with a cheesy flavour and the perfect amount of sweet and saltiness. 

One night I was craving mac and cheese and tacos at the same time... so I thought why not combine the two? And then it happened again for BBQ chicken and maples sausages, and that's how these three variations were born! I am so excited to share these recipes with you guys and hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)
